Obama and Boehner to Tee Up for First Golf Summit

Friday, June 17, 2011

On Saturday, President Obama plans to play golf with House Speaker John Boehner. What is already being dubbed as the “Golf-Summit” has the political blogosphere abuzz. How will the two interact? Will the president’s competitive streak be enough to compensate for Boehner’s acumen? To date, President Obama has kept his golf outings limited to a close knit group of friends; does this invitation indicate that he has learned to use the links as a new political tool? Joining us to discuss historic moments in presidential golf is Don Van Natta, Pulitzer Prize winner author of “Wonder Girl: the Magnificent Sporting Life of Babe Didrikson Zaharias.”  We’re also joined by Joan Cavanagh, President of Boardroom Golf, a company which teaches women how to use golf in order to advance their professional careers.
